Heraldry History & Dictionary

Heraldry eraldry in its most general sense encompasses all matters relating to the duties and responsibilities of officers of arms.

Proverbs of the Moment
Gaelic Proverbs come primarily from the western Highlands and Islands of Scotland, and they have a distinctly rural or agricultural flavor which reflects the society from which they were gathered. It is to be expected that many of them pertain to the weather, to the planting of crops, and to country life in general. Others reflect the Gaelic love of company and hospitality, fear of poverty and laziness.

Gaelic Proverb:
Se cleachdadh a ń tẹmachd.

English Translation:
Experience makes expertness.
